Birds-of-Paradise ProjectThe birds-of-paradise are among the most beautiful creatures on earth—and an extraordinary example of evolutionary adaptation. On this site you can find what few have witnessed in the wild: the displays of color, sound, and motion that make these birds so remarkable. Then you can delve deeper, examining the principles that guided their evolution and the epic adventure it took to bring you all 39 species.
This is definitely for the birds.
How easy is it to post a story? Is there something missing about the UI that I am not aware of? can I tag it?
Just a simple test. Have to send and receive, backup and restore, to test the goodness value of this software.
Exxon Mobil Lends Its Support to a Carbon Tax Proposal – The New York Times: “The group, the Climate Leadership Council, unveiled a ‘conservative climate solution’ in February that would fight global warming by taxing greenhouse gas emissions and returning the money to taxpayers as a ‘climate dividend.’ The underlying idea is that, by making energy derived from fossil fuels more expensive, the free market will move more quickly and effectively toward renewable energy and other low-carbon solutions.”
Amazon has scared grocers — and others — the world over – Axios: “Be smart: That’s why it seems best to ignore forecasts that Amazon will dramatically change Whole Foods culture, its fare, and operating style. Instead, he will want to embrace Whole Foods high-end quality brand, and hope it washes over onto cut-rate Amazon reputation.”
The “new” mini was cloned from a CCC backup (10.12.3) of the old one. All is well but slow. Now I can deal with the old Mac mini. OWC offers a turnkey update service. $79 which includes shipping both ways and installation of hardware. I like that price for service. I ordered a 480 GB SSD and a 2TB spinning drive to be placed in the mini. They did the task well, timely enough, and even replaced the OWC memory that was in it. Apparently it failed testing so they did the lifetime warranty replacement while it was there.
MarsEdit 3 – Desktop blog editing for the Mac.: “Think Outside The Browser
Browser-based interfaces are slow, clumsy, and require you to be connected to the internet just to use them. Browsers are perfect for reading web content, but not so great for creating it.”
I have been running
logwatch (installed via MacPorts) on my home Macs for at least a year.
logwatch --mailto root
Very recently my daily reports stopped showing up in my mail. I never like to see (not see) this happen.
Different versions of OS X.
Running things manually seems to work, but nightly job fails to send the mail report.
Chase things on the web, not much help, well, lots of false alarms. I finally saw a hint to turn off Apple’s org.postfix.master. I did that and voila, my
logwatch mail started flowing again.
